Best Answer

A ballerina.

The term "ballerina" refers to a PRINCIPAL dancer in a ballet company, not any girl who takes ballet. Although now the term seems to apply to any little lady in the craft. The real term (though little-known) for a female dancer other than the principal dancer is "danseuse."
